Yet More Ophelia Ford: Just a Pistol-Packin' 25-Year-Old. Who Knew?

VIDEO:: Memphis' best-known state Senator weighs in on the legislature's new gun bill. Just watch. Seeing is believing. (New glitch-free version.)

Here is state Senator Ford throwing in her two cents on the legislature's latest version of a guns-in-parking-lot bill. This clip begins with a Chamber of Commerce rep opposing the bill, then comes Ophelia, and then comes the vote. Be patient; the payoff is even better in context.



Now, whatever else you're thinking, do note for the record that , when it came time to vote, Senator Ford was the ONLY member of the Judiciary Committee not to vote Aye on this new gun bill. She abstained. Everybody else fell in line.
